By Heather Munro, freelance writer focusing on emerging healthcare technology.
The Health 2.0 Annual Conference is known for featuring the most up-to-the-minute trends, savviest healthcare technology entrepreneurs, and latest technology developments disrupting healthcare. Among the conference’s trendsetting lineup, there are some notable speakers making waves in voice artificial intelligence (AI) and insurtech.
Hope vs Hype: Will Voice AI Disrupt Decision Support?
There’s been a lot of buzz around the potential of AI to use voice technology to transform how physicians and providers make decisions and improve patient care.
During a session called Workforce Extenders: The Next Generation of Decision Support, we’ll ask two key players—Kristi Ebong, Senior Vice President of Strategy and General Manager of Healthcare Providers, Orbita, and Punit Soni, Chief Executive Officer and Co-founder, Suki—to weigh in on how the growth of this new technology will affect the patient experience.
With Amazon Alexa HIPPA-eligible, Orbita is well-positioned to help organizations navigate these new waters and tap into the power of voice assistants, chatbots, and other conversational AI technologies to improve care. Similarly, Suki, an artificial intelligence-powered, voice-enabled digital assistant for doctors, uses voice commands from a physician to create a clinically accurate medical note that’s pushed to an electronic health record system.
How are Consumer-Centric Insurtech Startups Changing Healthcare?
One of the pillars of healthcare, insurtech is experiencing explosive growth, thanks to new regulations and a renewed focus on consumer-forward business models. During a session called Big Bets in Insurtech, we’ll ask two CEOs on the forefront of the transformation—Tony Miller of Bind Insurance and Vivek Garipalli of Clover Health—what innovations we can expect to see in the near future.
Clover Health, which aligns its business goals with its members’ health needs, uses its proprietary technology platform to collect, structure and analyze health and behavioral data to improve medical outcomes and lower costs for patients. Bind Insurance offers On-Demand Health Insurance that promises to deliver coverage the way patients actually use the healthcare system.
Stay tuned for more details on upcoming speakers and sessions on the frontier of healthcare technology.
